This book provides a critique of over two decades of sustained effort to infuse educational systems with education for sustainable development. Taking to heart the idea that deconstruction is a prelude to reconstruction, this critique leads to discussions about how education can be remade, and respond to the educational imperatives of our time, particularly as they relate to ecological crises and human-nature relationships. It will be of great interest to students and researchers of sociology, education, philosophy and environmental issues.

"The nine chapters review the basis of environmental education (EE), its later-day evolution into education for sustainable development (ESD), and sustainability education (SE) - and a range of related concepts that provide opportunities for thinking about the future directions for education. The audiences for this discussion can then be thought of as: the insiders of EE and SE, those already part of the movement and who wish to debate theory; outsiders who are trying to understand the point of EE and SE; and, post-graduate research students wanting to engage with the relevant theory."
